Just what I asked for! Any worthwhile mods to this one?
Nice kit.! you probably don't want to do too much extra to the
O.T......Be sure to post some pics if you can.
Just a few things ya could do if ya wanna.
Order some balsa nose cones from Balsa Machining services.
a BNC-50y for the booster
a BNC 20b for the orbiter
I think Balsa Machining Services even has a laser cut (frigin' laser cut!) set of fins for $7.00.
Or contact JimZ and get a set of decals in a different color...maybe purple or green.
Or leave it "stock", it's a fine model "stock".
Don't start building it yet...Our local club HUVARS
is having an Orbital Transport kitbashing session in January.
Maybe we can have some really cool ideas thrown around for modifications and additions to the OT.
I got an OT this morning for $3.50. At my local Hobby Lobby, the sticker price was $6.99. They were not on the rack with the other rockets, so I was lucky to find them.
You STOLE it, man!
I'm finishing the one I got several weeks ago. I'm considering upsizing it next and wonder what's the largest OT anyone has seen fly (successfully!)? A booster based on a 2.6" tube would be almost 5 feet long!
well, while I know it isn't the biggest (i've seen bigger fly at CMASS), i love my BT70 based OT.
here;s a nice pix of it flying on a D and 2 C's
other pix can be seen at:
I've built 3 of them. My current flies on dual D12's
great model. Would love to put R/C gear in the orbiter!
